System Board replacement

HP Pavillion dv6 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to use Blender Cycles GPU rendering. It only works with Nividia CUDA cards. I have an ATI Radeon card. This card is soldered to the system board so I think swaping it is not an option. Can I replace the whole system board for one that has an Nvidia CUDA compatibale GPU on it?

Need the model number but the only way possible is if the same model series had an nVidia card option and you would have to locate and install that motherboard. Laptop motherboards are "one-off". The OEM designs them from the ground up and basically the motherboard defines the model series so you can only have what was offered on your model series e.g. dv6-3000 series.

Thanks Huffer for your very prompt reply. The HP support system seems to be down at the moment but I have the System SKU number - A7N52EA#ABU Model - HP Pavilion dv6-6c77sa.
